Celebrating Our Volunteers at HCA

Celebrating Our Volunteers at HCA

HCA is celebrating the achievements of our volunteers this year for national Volunteer’s Week hosted by @NCVO.  

Volunteers Week is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. It takes place on 1-7 June every year and is an “opportunity to celebrate volunteering in all its diversity”.  HCA will also be taking out a group of our volunteers for a celebration meal this week to mark the occasion too.

In 2018 HCA had an amazing 81 volunteers give in total 3509 hours of volunteering across our 3 sites.  We are really excited to share some of the amazing work our volunteers do, together they contribute so much in bringing our community together – helping us to support 1300+ people per year.

We have lots of different types of volunteers at HCA, from corporate volunteering to befriending to STEM Club to admin roles to name a few.  We plan to extend our volunteers week to a #HCAVolunteers month to allow us to showcase a bit more of their amazing work – so keep your eyes peeled for our HCA volunteer insights throughout June.
